IW synchronized skating team the Wight Jewels scored 52.80 in the long programme of the junior competition at the French masters in Lyon, for a total of 81.96. French team the Black Diams, in the lead after the short, increased their advantage, scoring 76.12 in the long for a total of 112.00. The Jewels’ overall score, however, is 22.9 marks higher than they obtained in the Welsh championships at Deeside.
The official results are at http://masters-synchro-lyon.com/site-en/index-4.html – please note that there appears to be an error on the site for the Jewels’ long programme score. Marks are not directly comparable with last season’s scores because of a change in the requirements for the programmes.
The Jewels fly back from Lyon tonight, arriving back on the Island very early Monday morning.
